In a moment gone
Shines a silent movie
Rapidly telling stories
A new day brings tomorrow
A continued life
Until it stops

TOUCHED WITH SERENITY.
Guadalajara Vol. 1 – “Hidden Landscapes“ [David de los Santos Gil]
With this timelapse starts a set of timelapses of Guadalajara (Spain). In this first one I have tried to show some hidden landscapes of this beautiful region, during ten months and using 30,000 photographies.

“Adventure Is Calling II” by Shane Black
Take another trip around the U.S. and parts of Canada through my eyes, with Adventure Is Calling II.
I was fortunate enough to spend several months this past summer traveling around the U.S. and parts of Canada, teaching workshops and shooting timelapse along the way. Since the trip was so similar to the year before, I thought it was fitting to dub this video as a sequel to Adventure Is Calling. This trip spanned just shy of 4 months, covered around 14,000 miles and led to this film, composed of nearly 20,000 still images.
It was so great getting so much feedback on the last video about how it inspired so many to get out, travel, and spend more nights under the stars. I hope this video will revamp those desires.
Special thanks to Arn Andersson for making an extended version of his song The Truth Beyond for me to use for this video. arnandersson.com
“April ended and May came along, but May was even worse than April. In the deepening spring of May, I had no choice but to recognize the trembling of my heart. It usually happened as the sun was going down. In the pale evening gloom, when the soft fragrance of magnolias hung in the air, my heart would swell without warning, and tremble, and lurch with a stab of pain. I would try clamping my eyes shut and gritting my teeth, and wait for it to pass. And it would pass….but slowly, taking its own time, and leaving a dull ache behind.
At those times I would write… In my letters to her, I would describe only things that were touching or pleasant or beautiful: the fragrance of grasses, the caress of a spring breeze, the light of the moon, a movie I’d seen, a song I liked, a book that had moved me. I myself would be comforted by letters like this when I would reread what I had written. And I would feel that the world I lived in was a wonderful one. I wrote any number of letters like this…”

“Inside the Beginning”
Directed by Danielle Bayer and Raphaell Rammé Roos
Narration by Castulo Guerra
This video was written and produced while traveling through Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil.
“A new life awaits you…a life that you have never seen
Start going away…feel…without going anywhere
It is not a matter of looking only far as the eyes can go
Open your mind…heart…and soul
And when you meet someone…learn listen beyond what words can say
Look into your eyes…and see the immensity of feelings to be shared
When you begin to look more outside, you’ll realize that you’re deeply looking for yourself
Live every moment more intensely… touch…breathe
Know your limits
Overcome your fears
Dream and Believe it
Because the great secret of happiness…is in the details…
And ask yourself …What do you do to feel better?”
“American Shokunin” from Ryan Bush
Shokunin (Sho-koo-neen) is a Japanese word used to describe an individual that aspires to become a master in their particular craft or art form. Ryan Neil falls firmly into this description, as he has been practicing the art of Bonsai for nearly two decades. In this short film, we get a glimpse at the broader thinking behind a professional American Bonsai practitioner, as well as some of the inherent challenges and aspirations that come along with the pursuit for bonsai mastery in America.

Trees are sanctuaries.
Who ever knows how to listen to them,
Can experience the truth.
They do not teach learning and precepts,
They preach, undeterred by particulars,
The ancient law of life.
“When we have learned how to listen to trees,
then the brevity and the quickness
and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts
achieve an incomparable joy.”
~ Herman Hesse ~
